Mysan_brewing (60) - - APR 30, 2013
Smells sweet, almost like cotton candy with a hint of metal. Golden, clear color. Taste is almost missing, and the taste that is there is not anything special. A pilzner at best and I don't like pilzners... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nonshaugen (556) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2017
50 cl(?), bottle conditioned, BB May 28th 2017. Slightly hazy, light amber, medium white head, lively carbonation. Not much to the nose other than slight hints of pale malts, almost lager-ish. Mouthfeel is a bit fizzy carbonation, a bit dry but mostly watery and thin. Flavours of caramel malts, toffee and honey, quite sweet beer. It,s nice and very sessionable.

GSAP (723) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016
Eigenlijk wel een fijne pils, meerendeel zoet, met name in het aroma, alsof er suikerwater inzit. Smaak is wat meer hooi, beetje pit, wat prima in nasmaak doortrekt. Decent is een juist woord.

Dandm (121) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2016
Clear light blonde, well carbonated. Malt, fruit, honey. Watery mouthfeel but leaves a buttery feeling in the mouth. Quite a nice easy drink after a long day.

LazyPyro (836) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden colour with a nice smooth creamy white head, long lasting too. No strong aromas from this, just some malt. Flavour is much the same, mainly malt but quite weak really, disappointing. On the plus side it is an extremely smooth beer. Kind of floral aftertaste, light bitterness. Overall nice but disappointingly weak and lagerish.

Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28.04.2014. ABV is 4.5%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of grain and dust, a hint of fruit. Fairly refreshing flavour, lagerish with a slight citrussy fruitiness. Will rerate when I have a fresher bottle.

shoestring (379) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Dark amber lager colour. Head retention poor on this pint. Low carb. Actually easily sunk. Mild orange bitterness. Dry palate in finish. Would take again for sure
